In other words, absolutely nothing is going on.
I ran some errands today which included a trip to SAM's. I was all excited because I had carefully studied my special e-value member brochure and was all set to buy large quantities of paper products and toilet cleaner even though I didn't need them because I was going to save 2.00! on plastic storage bags and 5.00! on plastic storage containers and 2.00! on Lysol bathroom cleaner and such (and some other spectacular savings!) And when you save 2.00! and 5.00! and 2.00! and other spectacular savings! it kind of cancels out the fact that you'll end up with HUGE BOXES of paper products that you have absolutely nowhere to store- cancels it out at least until you get home and realize what you've done.
Then you just want to be rid of it all and get your money back.
But as things would go, the nice cashier rang up my total and I noticed that there was no 2.00! or 5.00! savings showing up on the computer. No spectacular savings anywhere. Nada. And bless her heart if she didn't listen to my sob story about how I didn't need any of it and BIG BOXES and no storage and stuff, and then she delicately showed me the brochure that I had carefully studied and kindly pointed out the effective date of June 27 which by my calculations is two days away, and then she politely told me I had just bought exactly 249.00 worth of stuff I didn't need in very large boxes.
And I paid for it it anyway because I'm pathetic and sad. And I needed to teach myself a lesson.
Then after spending approximately 47 minutes cramming it all in my car I drove home while I ate an entire large bag of Pirate's Booty and drank a Diet Coke which had hours ago melted into a watery mess.
Because I am YOUR NUTRITION INSPIRATION.
In other news,
several of you asked to see pictures of my backyard.
Oh and this...
I looked out the back window and saw The Chief perched precariously atop the back fence while sawing a tree that had fallen over during the last little storm.
I mentioned a few things about safety! and insurance! and maybe even pain! and falling! and then I just stopped. Mainly because he may have a teensy problem with choosing to think that he is invincible.
After all I figured I was already prepared for any kind of injury. I could just haul him in the house using the furniture dolly and then use my 36 rolls of Charmin Extra Strength! as a full body gauze wrap.
Did you know it doesn't have perforations? Extra. Strength.
